Actress Luise Rainer, who became the first winner of consecutive Oscars in the 1930s, has died at the age of 104. The German-born star was named best actress in 1936 and 1937 - a feat achieved by only five actors in Academy Awards history to date.
Her achievement made her a force in the golden age of Hollywood cinema, but was also a curse, making her last major film in 1943.
According to her only daughter, she died from pneumonia at her London home.
